Not much carbonation and kind of flat. Nice hint of berry smell, small note of honey. Beautiful amber/gold color. The taste is kind of watery with a nice fizzy aftertaste. The mouthful is light. Overall it's decent.

Decent average flavor but boring to get through and leaves me sleepy after just one.

Mild hop bite and good malt flavor. Very good amber ale.

On tap poured into pint glass. Nice dark Amber color, mild smell, with a real sweet and light character with a great bold taste. Sweet caramel and a touch of earthy taste on the back end. Not much happiness at all, really smooth beer that you could drink all day. Not super complex but a great go-to ale.

Well, someone else described the taste of this swill as "old sweat socks" and I have to agree. Nasty.

Meh. I can see how it appeals to the masses, but I find it pretty below average.

This was the beer I moved on to after starting out on the cheap macro brews. It's a good to stepping stone to the craft beer world.

This is pretty good. Nice biscuity breadiness to it. Smell isn't very impressive, but the taste is on point. I could easily drink several of these in a session. Would buy again.
